Four Starters; Seven Overall Ruled Out for Steelers Against Kansas City Sunday

The Steelers will be somewhat shorthanded on Sunday night when they take on the Kansas City Chiefs at Heinz Field in primetime. The team has ruled out the following players: Ramon Foster (chest), Robert Golden (hamstring), Senquez Golson (foot), Roosevelt Nix (back), Eli Rogers (toe), Ryan Shazier (knee) and Cody Wallace (knee).

The good news is that the team may have the services of safety Sean Davis, which would give the team some relief in terms of their banged up defensive side of the field.

“As long as I feel like this on Sunday, I’m fine,” Davis said on Friday. “Of course, we didn’t tackle or anything so I’ve got to put that into account, but I feel good.”

Last week Davis played despite being injured against the Eagles in a 34-3 setback. Davis stated that playing with the injury may have made it a little worse, but it sounds like he’s ready to give it a go against KC.

One player that could get playing time with the injuries to the defensive backfield is Jordan Dangerfield. He told reporters that he spent some of the week practicing with the starters, which is a sign that he’ll get playing time in some from or fashion.

Dangerfield spent last season on the Steelers practice squad.

Despite all the injuries, it will be hard to find discounted Steelers tickets with the game on prime time, as well as the ceremony for new Hall of Famer Kevin Greene, who will get his Hall of Fame ring with the black and gold Sunday night.

His wife will also be singing the national anthem before the scheduled 8:30pm kickoff at Heinz Field.
